This is a poem about living away from home, and how I look back upon my home with an idealised opinion of it.

Fond rememberings,

of velvet fields

and fireflies dancing Giselle

by the small stream.

 

I miss you, fondly,

my treasure trove of dreams

gathering only a handful of daisies

from the silken embankment of opals.

 

I think of stone buildings

as if from Cinderella or Rapunzel,

and of bowls of little flowers

shining effavescantly like little stars

 

that have fallen from the cobalt.

But I forget the chiming of ten o'clock

at midnight on the Sabbath day,

and all too soon my many memories

 

turn from lilac rose to dusky grey.
